Consumer Privacy Across The Atlantic: Exploring The New EU-US Privacy Shield

Date: Thursday, March 24, 2016

Description: The predecessor to the Privacy Shield was the EU-US Safe Harbor, which was invalidated by a European Court back in October over surveillance concerns (watch prior event here). That court ruling triggered widespread concern over the effect on Internet businesses in the U.S.

Our event features officials from the European Commission and from the U.S. Department of Commerce, the entities that negotiated the EU-US Privacy Shield.
